ORCID for your proceedings paper

© SpringerYou can now add your ORCID to your name in all LNCS, CCIS, LNBIP, IFIP-AICT, and LNICST proceedings!

Make sure to use your unique, personal, persistent identifier (an iD) that distinguishes you from every other researcher. ORCID also enables organizations to link to your affiliations and works – including your publications - to your iD, ensuring  you receive proper credit for your work.

From the press release:

"Springer is the first publisher to include ORCID iDs in proceedings papers. Springer’s proceedings submission system, OCS, allows authors to enter and validate their ORCID iDs, thus integrating them into the workflow process from the very beginning. Authors and editors of proceedings that use other conference management systems can still provide ORCID iDs to appear in the proceedings and next to the editors’ information. This feature will be extended to Springer’s Linked Open Data portal in the near future.

Alfred Hofmann, Vice President, Computer Science Editorial, said: “With more than 10,000 volumes published in Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) and tens of thousands of authors each year, ORCID implementation is yet another step towards making proceedings metadata more transparent and open. Springer pioneered such efforts by launching the Linked Open Data portal and implementing ORCID. To the best of our knowledge, OCS is the first conference submission system that supports ORCID.”
